Acacia redolens Desert Carpet ® (Prostrate Acacia )

Acacia redolens Desert Carpet
Desert Carpet

This low growing, thornless groundcover is ideal for covering large spaces and providing erosion control. The Desert Carpet® cultivar is a reliably prostrate form of the Australian native. The leathery gray-green foliage looks good all year, and small, yellow puffball flowers are produced in the spring. It is well suited for alkaline and slightly saline soils and thrives in full and reflected sun exposures. Desert Carpet® needs ample room to spread.
